Fic Update: Pragmatic Dreams (9/?)
Chapter Title: The Parade (Read on Ao3!)
Pairing: Lana/Beniko/female Jedi Knight
Summary: When Darth Marr’s flagship is destroyed, the galaxy mourns the loss of a leader of the Jedi Order. And Lana Beniko mourns the loss of her lover. But when secrets are uncovered, Lana realizes that the only way to save the galaxy might just be to tear it apart, all for the woman she loves.
Lana looked down, realized her knuckles were almost white, and let go of the railing of the balcony. The balcony looked over one of the busiest streets in the Spire. Citizens of Zakuul lined the streets, all here for the parade celebrating the completion of the very first Star Fortress, up above Belsavis. A test run, they said. And if successful, they would expand the program to other worlds. No world would be safe from the Emperor’s new toys.
And the people of Zakuul ate it up; they looked for any chance to take a day off from work and celebrate. So they all milled around on the street and balconies, waiting for a glimpse of their Emperor.
Just like Lana.
